Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Not only is the information interesting, but the teacher is super passionate about what he teaches. He knows what he's doing and can answer your questions in exceptional detail. I really learned the information in that class and have kept it throughout my junior and senior year. The class is rigorous, but fun and exciting. I loved learning in his class, and I highly recommend that someone at Glenvar would take this course, especially the Dual Enrollment course. I loved this class, I looked forward to it every day at the end of the day. Not once did I dread that class. It was definitely a highlight in my relatively terrible junior year. The teacher made things interesting and made me want to learn and read, and I love it when the teacher is that good at their job.
I gained knowledge of things I hadn't a clue about in US History, and things that I had already learned, I gained a deeper understanding. I had an idea about Andrew Jackson, but I didn't have a total grasp on how much he sculpted the US in the 1820's and exactly what he did, good and bad. And, it taught me things I never knew about certain parts of history, such as the German soldiers having a decent impact on the Revolutionary War. It really caught my attention.

Advice for students:
Pay attention to what the teacher is saying. Not only will it benefit you in doing well in the class, but the little factoids and elaboration on certain parts of the course is absolutely fascinating. Another thing is do not wait for deadlines on papers. There's only a couple of papers throughout the course, but they're huge and need time to do proper research and write a good paper. I know a couple of people who did really well in the class, but did terrible on the papers and they nearly failed the class. You need to do the work and do the projects that are in the course as well. Don't wait, do the assignments and the papers when you first get them to save yourself stress and a bad grade.
